Subject: Excellent recording, good performance, but some 1982 recordings here
Subject: nice recording, interesting show
I pity that poor guitar player, trying to come up with guitar parts to replace the insanely creative and unique parts played by Gilmour and Garcia on the album - the little guitar effect on Transverse City is a bit comical compared to the incredible MIDI voice on the original, though it's well played. And I do like the weird rearrangement of the outro on that song.
It's great to hear hot versions of these T-City songs, which are some of my favorites out of the whole Zevon catalog - the whole album isn't great, but the best songs (these, They Moved The Moon, Gridlock) are just fricken great.
A real nice upload and well worth the listen.
Subject: Excellent sound, reasonable show
The setlist is also interesting, focusing heavily on the underrated 'Transverse City' album.
Sadly, what (slightly) lets this one down is the performance. The songs are well-played, and Warren's in excellent voice, but there's little of the fiery energy of some of his better shows, which makes even rougher-sounding recordings so enormously enjoyable. There's not much in the way of between-song banter, and while Warren sounds engaged and committed on his then-current 'Transverse City' material, some of the older songs sound almost perfunctory, as though he was simply bored with playing them for the umpteenth time.
Not a bad recording, and easily the equal of either of Zevon's officially-released live albums. But there are better concerts available to download here.
Subject: AMAZING SHOW!!!
Sound here is fantastic. Setlist and track sequence just wonderfull. The whole band on fire and Warren Zevon on his very best.
One problem: no personal listed ...
Anyone please help post the personal list.
10 stars of 5 - not less.
